I was hearing the NCSD on SNACC analog but am no longer. There was an article in the PV Times that the SD went digital. I have heard the dispatcher respond to the occasional officer on SNACC telling them to use ""Astro". Still hearing PV fire on SNACC.
Win500 works great. Has a 30 day free trial. IMHO it's worth the money.
Ok so make sure you have the snacc and the snacc p25 progamed into your scanner. Make sure your trunking tables are mot type 2 rebanded for snacc and p25 auto for snacc p25. Then set a wildcard for each system and try to catch tgids for your L/E S/O guys.
I say this with 100% confidence.
I'm listening to NCSO on my new Uniden BCD396XT portable scanner.
Also using a Uniden BCD996XT with the same good results.
Both are automatically switching between analog and P25 (yes,... display reads P25)
as the calls go out to either NCSO, Fire or MercyAir.
Scanning the Pahrump site for 800 mhz SNACC and it's trunk tracking perfectly.
I used RR's database and imported it into my scanner using FreeScan.
Turn off all the sites that aren't Pahrump and presto... Fast scanning.
Don't even bother with the VHF as the noise floor is so high
in this valley that it is itself, a possible RF radiation hazard.
